As a landlord or lettings agent, how would you fare if a particularly knowledgeable, tricky tenant decided to hang on to his tenancy all the way to court? What if he found a loophole in your paperwork which meant the Judge had no option but to refuse to issue a possession order, which would mean the tenant is legally allowed to stay in your property whether or not they are paying rent?

No one responsible for letting out property wants to take matters all the way to court.  It costs time, money and causes an unbelievable amount of stress on all parties.  The only way to protect yourself and your business is to ensure you have carried out your letting legal obligations according to current Government tenancy legislation.

The media has been focussing on buy to let landlords and lettings agents for a while now, picking out stories which demonstrate how important it is for anyone involved in housing to be abreast of and stay up to date with housing law.

Easy Law Training specialise in legal training for landlords and letting agents.  Their workshops are led by experienced solicitors and barristers who actively practice in this sector. Their aim is to make sure you stay the right side of the law and continue with your business confident in your landlord legal knowledge.

Workshops are typically 14-20 people, allowing one to one questions and in depth study.  Our venues are centrally located with free wi-fi, disabled access and are within walking distance from a mainline station.  Both workshops will be organised and hosted by HMO Landlady, Serena Thompson.  For more information including booking, travel and accommodation arrangements please follow the links or email her at
